Imagine a dystopian London, gripped by inequality, where Izi and Benji, played by Kano and Jedaiah Bannerman respectively, fight for their place in “The Kitchen.” This rebellious community refuses to submit to a tyrannical government. At the heart of this struggle, Royal Enfield’s “IZI’s Ride” becomes a symbol of status, independence and identity for the character of Izi.
More than a motorcycle, an artistic creation
The Royal Enfield UK team, led by Custom and Motorsport Program Director, Adrian Sellers, has joined forces with multidisciplinary artist Gaika Tavares. Together, they have fashioned a machine that fuses neo-dystopian design, brutalism, and cyberpunk aesthetics. Based on the new Shotgun 650 platform, “IZI’s Ride” pushes the limits of custom.
« NWe are very excited to open a new chapter in the accelerating story of Royal Enfield design and customization with the ‘IZI’s Ride’. This is the first time that our brand has been so involved in a Netflix film of this importance and it is a great honor to have been able to start thinking and imagining the design of a motorcycle by reading the script of an Oscar-winning artist . », explains Adrian Sellers.
The characteristics of IZI’s Ride
This daring custom features equipment specially developed for the occasion. “ The universe of the film is so deep and it was designed with such mastery by the production and director team that it was a real challenge to create a motorcycle that was totally credible and coherent in this dystopian environment, while adopting Instantly recognizable Royal Enfield custom codes. », deciphers Adrian Sellers.
Here are the elements they worked on:
– Front and rear hub covers
– Monocoque tank and saddle shell
– Integrated Perspex and LED rear light
– Machined steel frame cover
– Replacement side covers
– Fork covers with integrated LED lighting
– Swingarm covers
– Custom colors and graphics, paint and vinyl
Beyond the screen, the Shotgun 650, a source of inspiration for “IZI’s Ride”, will be available from February 1 in Europe and is already being tested on our site. Featuring four unique colorways – Stencil White, Plasma Blue, Green Drill, and Sheetmetal Grey. In the meantime, you can now watch the film on Netflix to enjoy this magnificent preparation.
